. >> cenk: hillary clinton was on walmart's board of directors for six years, too. do you think she should not have been secretary of state? >> i think there is a whole range of issues that one should consider in terms of clinton's record, but i think it was appropriate that her connection and others' connections to walmart became an issue in the primary. we saw in 2008 prominent democratic party officials speaking out about walmart. we have not seen in recent months since the strikes that took place on black friday or before very many democrats and certainly nobody at the top of the party speaking up about these strikes or speaking up about this challenge to the dominant employer in the united states at the moment. i think the fact that hillary clinton served in a role where she helped to improve walmart's image. she helped walmart get over its imagine as a white-male company is something that she should have been asked to answer for much more. at the time she suggested changes, but she didn't speak up about labor issues in walmart, and something she should have been held much more

: beyond leading the charge to impeople president clinton, lindsey graham unlike hagel has never seen combat, correct? >> that would be correct. >> john: what is the state of the g.o.p. in south carolina? if an elected representative shows a glimmer of moderation, are they facing a primary? >> they are. we have a very active and very aggressive tea party very conservative very, very conservative tea party effort here and so it is driven moderate the out of the republican party. that's been good for the democratic party because we believe, for instance, in the upcoming special election that the voters of the first congressional district who traditionally vote republican will elect elizabeth colbert-bush as their congresswoman instead of disgraced former governor mark sanford. >> john: i'm glad you brought that race up. i think that specific race in south carolina for my money will be the congressional race to watch in 2014. of course, we're talking about the first congressional district which opened up when tim scott was named senator replaced jim demint who went off to be a lobbyist.

clinton. right? >> that's right. bill clinton at the globes introducing lincoln. exactly. >> everybody said before it came out that zero dark 30 was run away but the om one that could beat "lincoln" i feel the wind has gone out of the sails of "zero dark thirty" and "lincoln". >> yeah. when i was at tore onto the toronto film festival happens right after teluride. and they form the beginning of the cam paper system and at that point, "argo" was one being touted because that had premiered at and nobody had seen "zero dark 30" or "lincoln." then "lincoln" pops you want up. classic best picture, all of the bones of a best picture in terms of subject matter executive, and "zero" i would maintain the same in terms of just the quality. then you see the campaperingly kick in and here, "argo" is the front runner. somebody yesterday compared it to romney during primary where romney was the presumed frontrunner but then you had your santorums and bachmanns, you know, your little bursts. >> yeah. >> of other guys. at the end of the day, it could be the first guy, you know, that we were talking ab
